Utidig Vækst (untimely growth) is a long-term eco-aesthetic art project that investigates and documents the local at risk land in North Jutland, Denmark. In a series of walks, the project invites participants to co-investigate the different types of nature found on the 20km long stretch which is to be included in a new motorway project in Aalborg; from post-industrial waste sites to gardens, agriculture, and ditches.

The walk (Norden)was a performative art walk on 20km stretch of land of the planned 3.Limfjords motorway in Aalborg.  The walk explores the relationship between land and lungs that plays out in the historical asbestos waste site near the planned motorway. Reading of Resistive Tales, a collection og site specific and instruction-based tales of the environment by Alexandra Jönsson, as well as seed collection. Guest speaker  from Borgerbevægelsen imod Egholm Motorvejen. 

The project was kindly supported by Aalborg Municipality.
